Background: Alveolar ridge preservation could be performed immediately following tooth extraction to limit dimensional changes of alveolar process due to bone resorption. The aim of this study was to compare the clinical and histologic outcomes of socket preservation using two different graft materials; deproteinized bovine bone mineral (DBBM) and demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA) with absorbable collagen membrane.
Materials and Methods: Twenty extraction sockets in 20 patients were randomly divided into 2 treatment groups: 10 sockets were augmented with DBBM and collagen membrane whereas 10 sockets were filled with DFDBA and covered by collagen membrane. Primary closure was achieved over extraction sockets by flap advancement. Horizontal and vertical ridge dimensional changes were assessed at baseline and after 4-6 months at the time of implant placement. For histological and histomorphometrical analysis, bone samples were harvested from the augmented sites with trephine during implant surgery. All data were analyzed using SPSS version 18 (α=0.05).
Results: Clinical measurements revealed that average horizontal reduction was 2.3 ± 0.64 mm for DFDBA and 2.26 ± 0.51 mm for DBBM. Mean vertical ridge resorption at buccal side was 1.29 ± 0.68 mm for DFDBA and 1.1 ± 0.17 mm for DBBM. Moreover, mean vertical ridge reduction at lingual site was 0.41 ± 0.38 mm and 0.35 ± 0.34 mm for DFDBA and DBBM, respectively. No significant differences were seen between two groups in any of those clinical parameters. Histologic analysis showed statistically significant more new bone deposition for DFDBA compared to DBBM (34.49 ± 3.19 vs. 18.76 ± 3.54) (P < 0.01). Residual graft particles were identified significantly more in DBBM (12.77 ± 1.85) than DFDBA (6.06 ± 1.02).
Conclusion: Based on the findings of this study, both materials have positive effect on alveolar ridge preservation after tooth extraction, but there was more new bone formation and less residual graft particles in DFDBA group than in DBBM group.

| Introduction|| |
Tooth extraction often results in alveolar ridge resorption with substantial reduction in height and width of the alveolar bone. The extent of resorption may be affected by several factors, for example, the number of bony socket walls, bone density, severity of periodontal bone loss, the presence of infection, and the absence of adjacent teeth. ,,,, Alveolar bone remodeling and resorption after tooth extraction is considerably greater at buccal plate than at lingual plate of both maxilla and mandible.  In addition, it has been reported that 50% reduction in the bucco-lingual width of postextraction sites will occur after 12 months.  Frequently, the resorbed ridge cannot properly accommodate root form dental implants.  Decreased dimensions of the ridge may result in the insertion of shorter and narrower implant, which may influence long-term function and stability of the implant supported restoration.  Furthermore, it may inhibit the placement of an implant in a prosthetically and esthetically acceptable location. 
When immediate implant placement is not indicated, socket preservation is a method of choice used to minimize the dimensional changes in soft and hard tissues after tooth extraction.
For this purpose, different graft materials and techniques have been introduced. ,,,,,,,, A number of studies have used guided bone regeneration technique for ridge preservation and reported that the technique can preserve the ridge dimensions more predictably than natural healing does. ,,,,, However, using graft materials in extraction sockets can result in remaining nonvital graft particles, ,,,,,,,, which may interfere with the normal healing process of sockets in which dental implants have to be inserted. ,,,
It is not known whether implants inserted in residual graft particles will show long-term success or not, but most clinicians prefer placing implants into vital bone.  Therefore, a material which can preserve ridge dimension and also promote socket fill with vital bone will be the most acceptable one. The primary objective of this randomized clinical trial was to assess horizontal and vertical ridge changes following socket preservation using resorbable collagen membrane and two different graft materials; deproteinized bovine bone mineral (DBBM) and demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA); the second objective was to evaluate healing of the grafted sockets via histologic and histomorphometric analysis.

The research protocol of this randomized controlled study was approved by the Ethical Committee of Shahed University, Tehran, Iran, and was registered in Iranian Registry of Clinical Trials (IRCT) with registry code: IRCT2013080414270N1. Twenty-five teeth scheduled for extraction were selected in 25 patients; 17 females and 8 males with mean age of 35.35 years (age range from 21 to 62 years). Patients were chosen from the individuals looking for tooth extraction and implant therapy at the Departments of Periodontology and Implantology, Faculty of Dentistry, Shahed University, Tehran, Iran They were included in this study based on the following criteria:
- Single rooted teeth with hopeless prognosis
- Buccal plate with 2 mm and more dehiscence or thickness <1 mm.
The exclusion criteria were consisted of any systemic disease or medication that interfered with bone healing (such as diabetes, autoimmune diseases, prolonged corticosteroids therapy, or chemotherapy), smoking, allergic reaction, and current pregnancy.
Before entering the study, patients were given an explanation of the nature of the investigation and they signed an informed consent form. Patients were randomly allocated to one of the treatment groups (DFDBA or DBBM) by a computer-generated randomization list.
A comprehensive periodontal examination was performed and oral hygiene instructions were given for all patients. Periapical/panoramic radiographs, clinical photographs, and study cast were taken. In cases with abscess formation, systemic antibiotics including amoxicillin and metronidazole were given 1 week prior to extraction. Customized acrylic stents were fabricated on study casts to serve as fixed reference guides for measurement of vertical and horizontal dimensional changes of alveolar ridge. A narrow vertical notch was prepared on both sides of the stent along the midpoint of the extraction socket. The following clinical parameters were assessed: (1) Horizontal measurement which was the distance from coronal border of buccal aspect to the coronal border of the lingual/palatal aspect of the alveolus or ridge at midpoint. This measurement was performed with a caliper to the nearest tenth of millimeter; (2) vertical measurements, (a) the distance between the most coronal point of buccal side of the socket or ridge and the most apical end of the stent at the place of its notch, and (b) similar measurement at lingual/palatal aspect. Michigan-O-probe with William marking was used to determine vertical measurements.
Following administration of local anesthesia, sulcular incision was made around tooth to be extracted and two adjacent teeth on buccal and palatal/lingual sides. On buccal side, two vertical incisions were made at mesial and distal papilla of the adjacent teeth. These incisions were extended beyond mucogingival junction. After full-thickness flap reflection on buccal and lingual sides, atraumatic tooth extraction using periotome was performed. Sockets were debrided with curette to remove all granulation tissues and periradicular lesions [Figure 1]. The periosteum of buccal flap was incised; this would allow coronal advancement of facial flap and a tension-free primary closure. Acrylic stent was placed on neighboring teeth, and then measurements were recorded as described before [Figure 2] and [Figure 3]. Extraction sockets were divided into two treatment groups randomly and were grafted with DFDBA (CenoBone® ; Tissue Regeneration Corporation, Kish Island, Iran) or DBBM (Bio-Oss® ; Geistlich Pharma AG, Wolhusen, Switzerland). Collagen membrane (Bio-Gide® ; GeistlichPharma) was trimmed and placed over the grafted socket and alveolar bone in both groups [Figure 4]. Each material was applied according to the manufacturer's instructions. Buccal and lingual/palatal flaps were approximate using interrupted simple loop and vertical mattress sutures. Patients were visited weekly until suture removal which was 14 days after surgery. After that, they were visited monthly. Postsurgical medication consisted of amoxicillin 500 mg every 8 h for 1 week, 400 mg ibuprofen every 6 h, if needed, and 0.2% chlorhexidine mouth rinse twice a day for 3 weeks. Patients scheduled for dental implant surgery 4-6 months after the first surgery. At this stage, full-thickness buccal and palatal/lingual mucoperiosteal flaps were elevated. Clinical measurements were recorded similar to the first surgery. An osseous core (2 mm × 6 mm) was obtained from the center of the grafted socket using a trephine with a 2 mm inner and 3 mm outer diameter. The implant osteotomy was completed afterward and the implant was inserted.

For histological and histomorphometrical evaluation, the harvested bone specimens were fixed in 10% buffered formalin then decalcified in 10% formic acid for 2 days. The blocks were processed and sectioned in 4 μm thick serial longitudinal sections through central part of core specimens, then stained with hematoxylin and eosin. The sections were analyzed by a single examiner blinded to the type of treatment. Histomorphometric analysis was performed under optic microscopy (magnification ×40) with image analysis software (Iranian HistoMorpho Meter, IHMM, Version 1.0, SBMU, Iran). At least three randomly selected fields, 1 per section for each patient were used to calculate the percentage of lamellar bone and woven bone, and residual graft particles. In addition, the number and percentage of sockets with different amount of inflammation and two types of bone marrow (fibro-vascular or fatty-vascular/fibrous) were assessed [Figure 5],[Figure 6],[Figure 7] and [Figure 8].

In this study, Shapiro-Wilk and Levene's tests were used to assess the normal distribution of the values and equality of variances, respectively. Statistical significance of differences between two treatment groups for horizontal and vertical measurements, woven and lamellar bone, and residual graft particles were analyzed using t-test and Mann-Whitney U-test. For comparing qualitative variables (bone marrow and inflammation) between two groups, Fisher's exact test was used. Type I error was set at 0.05 and all analyses were done using SPSS version 18 (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA).
| Results|| |
Twenty-five patients completed the socket preservation surgery. Five patients refused to continue the research protocol due to lack of compliance with the scheduled appointments and did not take part in the implant placement surgery. Twenty patients (14 women, 6 men, mean age 35.5, and age range 21-62 years) completed the study. Surgical procedures were performed without complications and the postsurgical healing phase was uneventful. Horizontal ridge changes are shown in [Table 1]. Horizontal measurements revealed that in DFDBA group, 29.75% ± 2.61 reduction in ridge width occurred between baseline and 4-6 months postsocket preservation. Similarly, DBBM group showed 28.58% ± 1.82 reduction in ridge width from baseline to final. The difference in ridge width between baseline and postextraction was statistically significant in each group, but there was no statistically significant difference between two groups in this regard (P = 0.878). Vertical measurements at baseline and 4-6 months postsurgery showed 1.29 ± 0.68 mm (23.91% ± 4.55) and 1.1 ± 0.17 mm (18.02% ± 1.58) reductions in ridge height at buccal aspect in DFDBA and DBBM groups, respectively. These values were 0.41 ± 0.38 mm (7.84% ± 2.3) and 0.35 ± 0.34 mm (5.83% ± 1.71) at lingual side [Table 2]. The differences in vertical height reduction between baseline and postextraction were statistically significant in each group. Although this reduction was greater in both buccal and palatal/lingual sides in DFDBA group than in DBBM group, there were no statistically significant differences in these values between two groups.

Histologic and histomorphometric evaluation
All sections showed bone formation that included lamellar bone and woven bone [Table 3]. The average amount of lamellar bone was higher in DFDBA group than in the DBBM group, but the difference was not statistically significant (P = 0.101). New bone with increased osteoblastic activity was observed in intimate contact with DBBM particles [Figure 7]. There were no statistically significant differences between the two groups with respect to the types of bone marrow [Table 4] (P = 0.141). The amount of inflammation was higher in DBBM group than in DFDBA group [Table 5], but the difference was not statistically significant (P = 0.653). Results of histomorphometric analysis are shown in [Table 6]. The mean percentage of vital bone for DBBM group was 18.76% ± 3.54 and for DFDBA group it was 34.49% ± 3.19. There was statistically significant difference in total bone between groups (P = 0.004). DFDBA-treated sockets showed 6.06 ± 1.02% of residual graft particles whereas DBBM-treated sockets contained 12.77% ± 1.85 residual graft particles. The difference between two groups was statistically significant (P = 0.005).

| Discussion|| |
The present randomized clinical trial compared DBBM with DFDBA in ridge preservation following tooth extraction. DBBM (Bio-Oss® ) is Deproteinized Bovine Bone Mineral with high osseoconductive property proved by clinical and histologic studies. ,,, DFDBA is supposed to cause bone regeneration through both osseoconduction and osseoinduction properties.  Animal studies have demonstrated that the process of demineralization exposes bone morphogenic proteins which have the potential to induce the differentiation of local uncommitted connective tissue cells into osteoblasts. ,
In this 4-6 months study, changes in ridge width occurred clinically following tooth extraction in both groups. The average loss of alveolar width was 2.26 ± 0.51 mm (28.58%) for the DBBM and 2.3 ± 0.64 mm (29.75%) for the DFDBA group, but the intergroup difference was not statistically significant. Cardaropoli et al.  used DBBM and collagen membrane to preserve extraction sockets and reported alveolar ridge changes were less in the treated group (1.04 ± 1.08 mm) than control group (4.48 ± 0.65 mm). Their study includes premolar and molar teeth, and augmentation was performed without flap elevation. Gholami et al.  showed 1.07 mm loss of ridge width in nonmolar sockets filled with DBBM, but their study was different from ours in the way they included the teeth that had complete socket walls. Moreover, our findings were not in agreement with Kotsakis et al.'s investigation that showed mean reduction in the buccolingual dimension of 1.39 ± 0.57 mm in DBBM group.  The reason for this difference could be attributed to utilizing socket plug technique and molar and premolar extracted sockets. Iasella et al.  showed that ridge preservation using freeze-dried bone allograft and collagen membrane resulted in less alveolar ridge loss compared to extraction alone (1.2 ± 0.9 mm vs. 2.6 ± 2.3 mm). Vance et al.  showed in their study on nonmolar teeth 0.5 ± 0.8 mm loss of ridge width in both Bio-Oss® and collagen membrane group and DFDBA in a putty carrier group.
In the present study, height of the alveolar ridge decreased in buccal and lingual/palatal sides of preserved sockets in both groups, DFDBA group experienced a 1.29 mm loss in buccal sides, whereas DBBM group showed reduction of 1.1 mm. The difference was not statistically significant between the two groups. More bone loss occurred in the buccal than in the lingual/palatal side following tooth extraction. This is in agreement with the results of other studies. , Nevins et al.  evaluated the fate of buccal plate in maxillary anterior teeth by comparing pre- and post-extraction computed tomography scans. They showed a vertical resorption of 2.42 ± 2.58 mm in sockets grafted with Bio-Oss® , while it was 5.24 ± 3.72 mm in control group. Cardaropoli et al.  reported 0.46 mm mean height reduction after 4 months using Bio-Oss® collagen. This value was 0.7 mm in Barone et al.  study using DBBM. In addition, Vance et al.  reported 0.3 ± 0.7 mm vertical loss in DFDBA and 0.7 ± 1.2 mm vertical gain in Bio-Oss® groups. The more positive outcome obtained by DBBM may be related to its low resorption rate, enabling the graft to act as a scaffold for longer time. ,
Van der Weijden et al.  showed that spontaneous healing following tooth extraction resulted in average reduction of 3.87 mm in width and 1.67 mm in height of alveolar ridge. Based on systematic reviews, when socket augmentation is performed, ridge dimensions can be preserved to some extent. , The results seem to depend on the type of materials and technique used  and on the condition of the socket. Many studies performed on intact sockets included molar teeth that have thick buccal and lingual plates while many conducted on sockets with bony defects. Flap closure over the augmented socket is another issue that was varying in different studies.
For histologic and histomorphometric evaluation, bone was harvested from implant sites with trephine bur. To be ensured that specimens were obtained from grafted portion of sockets not the native bone, a narrow trephine with 2 mm internal diameter and 3 mm external diameter was used and only a 3 mm × 6 mm bony core was taken. The mean amount of new bone for DFDBA group was 34.49% which was in line with Froum et al.  and Wood et al.  studies, they showed 34.7% and 38.4% new bone in socket grafted with DFDBA. In our study, the mean amount of new bone for DBBM was 18.76% which was significantly less than DFDBA group. Calasans-Maia et al. demonstrated a mean value of 19.3% (±22.6) new bone formation in socket grafted with Bio-Oss® after a 24-week healing period which was in line with our study. 
Lee et al.  reported 23.6% new bone formation in sockets grafted with DBBM and Gholami et al. showed 27.35% in their 6-8 months study. Artzi et al.  in a 9 months study reported 46% bone formation using same material. Differences in the amount of bone formation between studies could be due to different follow-up time. In our research, the amount of new bone in DFDBA group (34.49%) was more than DBBM group (18.76%). The difference may be attributed to low resorption rate of DBBM and demineralized nature of DFDBA. Chan et al. in a systematic review reported that the mean percentage of vital bone in natural healing sockets was 38.5%, the use of DFDBA did not affect the amount of vital bone formation, and DBBM showed conflicting results.  Vance et al. who augmented sockets with DFDBA in a carrier (carboxymethylcellulose and calcium sulfate) or DBBM presented 61 ± 9% vital bone in DFDBA group versus 26 ± 20% in the DBBM group after 4 months. They have explained that higher percentage of vital bone in DFDBA group may be related to earlier and greater vascular and cellular growth in porous structure of the carrier material. 
In the present work, residual graft particles in DFDBA group (6.06%) were less than DBBM group (12.77%), which is in agreement with other studies. ,, However, the amount of residual DBBM (12.77%) was still significantly less than the mentioned amount by Zitzmann et al.  (40%) for successful implant placement.
The residual particles of DBBM were in contact with both new bone and osteoid [Figure 7], this is in agreement with other studies. , The incorporation of the DBBM particles with new bone provide a dense scaffold for further bone deposition and a good support for dental implants.  Furthermore, DBBM graft particles are known to be resorbed and replaced with bone slowly, which means that the graft material takes part in bone remodeling. ,
| Conclusion|| |
The results of this 4-6 months study exhibited that from the clinical point of view, both DFDBA and DBBM covered by collagen membrane have similar effects on horizontal and vertical bone resorption of extraction sockets. Histomorphometrically, the percentage of new bone formation in DFDBA group was more than DBBM group while DBBM was associated with higher residual graft particles.
